The title pretty much sums this up! Campus Crusade for Christ requires their long-term staff to have a will and what not. To say the least it was a sobering experience to type up who will be the “Executor of my estate” and adversely my heir (thanks to my sister Megan who got the job!) and also type instructions for my death, burial and ceremony. These were my instructions on that:
I direct that my remains be donated to only necessary organs to organ donor recipients. I DON’T WANT THE WHOLE OF MY BODY DONATED TO SCIENCE. Just organs that will be used to give, add, and enhance life for those in need. Then cremate my body! Scatter my ashes off of the Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic into the Vlatava river. I authorize my Executor to carry out these directions and wishes, particularly those for the disposition of my remains.
It was an intense few minutes but also good! In a very, very sobering way. It reminds of the truth of life:
And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment… Hebrews 9:27
